Insigna flat screen TV powering up

Question

cjac

Hi all,

I have an Insignia (Best Buy brand, 1.5 year old) 32 inch LCD flat screen TV, here's the issue. It'll look like its turning on (blue LED light indicator) but after a couple seconds, go to RED and not power up. Try again and it goes blank and back to RED, never back to blue like it's even trying to power up. So, I unplug and try again, and again, etc. No luck, but every once in a while, like tonight, it will hold on the blue LED light and power up, but not often at all. Turn off and back on, it's good. Wait a while and no luck.

From what I know, this means it's not the "guts" of the TV, since it will work on occasion, as its on now. Not the "color wheel", again since it's on. I've tried other outlets, same thing, so I'm confident it'sd not an in-house wiring issue. Any ideas or past experience?

Thanks, Chris

Me thinks it is in the guts of the TV and sooner or later (probably sooner) it's not going to come on again.

About the only other thing I can think of is to check the manual or settings for any kind of sleep or standby mode.

If there is any warranty left, I'd be taking it in. Remember, if you bought it on a credit card, your warranty automatically doubles from the credit card company in many cases.

Ditto, it's inside.

If it was a CRT I'd say power supply issue, but I've never been in a LCD though.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.
